Chiyonosono Sake Brewery was founded in 1896 in the former Yamaga Town (now Yamaga City). Katsutaro Honda, the former chairman of the company, had a strong passion for pure sake made only with rice and rice malt, and after WWII, at a time when ordinary sake was at its peak nationwide due to the rice shortage, he pioneered the production of junmai sake. Recently, Katsutaro has entered his sake in many international competitions, winning numerous awards at the IWC in England and the Kura Master in France.
